Eco-Label

A label attached to a consumer good indicating that it is energy efficient, was produced sustainably, or is otherwise environmentally friendly. Different jurisdictions have different rules governing what products may qualify for eco-labels. Some countries and industries have voluntary schemes with standards set by professional bodies, while others use mandatory, government-issued labels.
